GM High Tech Reviews ACS Splitter and Rockers

Our 2012 Chevy Camaro SS Project Adds a Front Splitter and New Side Rockers
he fifth-gen Camaro’s factory SS front-end is simply boring, at least when compared to the Z/28, ZL1, or even the 1LE. We wanted to give our 2012 SS a serious nose job, so we teamed up with the Advanced Composite Specialties (ACS) in the last issue of Camaro Now for a more aggressive, and aerodynamically altering front split

Camaro Fest III 2012, Indianapolis, Lucas Raceway

On August  3 and 4 2012 Camaro5.com was hosting their annual Fest,  a Camaro Forum Member meet, an opportunity for us to meet customers and create new friendships.  It was a pleasure to meet  members and thank them for their support and answer their questions. Truly a group of enthusiast who know how to have a great time.   The event was hosted at the Lucas Motorsports Speedway, but the party did not end there as the festivities continued into the night at each respective hotel parking lot.

I would like to extend special thanks to the Camaro5.com organizers, a very well organized team. A car club going beyond the line of duty, enthusiastic about the brand but most importantly about the relationships being built around the event. Definitely the best Camaro Fest to date, special thanks to Indianapolis for hosting us and the organizers for a great job! It was a blast, wish we had more time to walk around and see what other vendors were offering. It was great meeting many of you and actually linking a face to name and a Camaro ;-)

Here are a few shots from the show…. we’ll definitely see you next year, we can’t possibly miss one of these.

New Camaro SS Functional Mailslot conversion Kit

The 5th Gen Camaro SS is instantly recognized by its signature bumper mail slot. The feature is derived from Chevrolet’s racing heritage, it was a functional scoops on the original prototype Camaro but  by the time GM engineers integrated it into production version it became a cosmetic feature.

With the ACS T3 Rad Support, you can finally utilize the mail slot and let the cold air into the engine compartment and enhance cooling.

Ideally installed with our T3 Hood ports the T3 rad support can be used with or without.

Bumper will need to be removed for installation and trimming of the mail slot area is required.

Panel is sold primed and can be painted any colors to enhance your engine compartment!

Why ACS Composite products are unlike anything else…

ACS’s history is derived from OEM experience and engineering, the company’s philosophy is to apply its knowledge and technology gained from the OEM programs and offer the same quality standard to all its product line including the aftermarket. In a nutshell the secret is RTM, Resin Transfer Molding, it is a manufacturing process where dry continuous fiberglass mat is placed in a closed female / male tool. Under pressure the mold cavity is filled with liquid catalyzed resin. Most entry level or prototype composite panels are made using chopped strand mat, a cost effective solution and favorable for hand made parts, chopped strand mats are random 1” strands of glass mats compared to the continuous mats which is indefinite and offering a very consistent and predicable mechanical property. By automating the process ACS engineers are able to control each manufacturing variable to produce a product built to match the required specifications.

How can you tell the difference?  Visually, ACS parts are smooth on both sides, and are prepped and primed. The rest is in the formulation and durability of the part. Time will tell you… It is all about the process and materials used…

ACS’s RTM process utilizes large presses and heavy tooling to ensure quality parts. ACS’s proprietary molds are computer temperature controlled for repeatability and part consistency. Average tool weight is 4-5000 lbs. Another secret, unlike typical hand laminated parts, which are made in low cost lightweight composite tools, which tend to distort and bend over time.

  • Parts are same thickness throughout, insure proper stack height and an excellent fit on the vehicle
  • Smooth finish on both sides of panel
  • Similar mechanical properties to SMC (Sheet Molding Compound)
  • Consistent glass/resin ratio content
  • Fully cured in mold
  • High filler rate for great heat distortion resistance
  • Tested for automotive glass A finish
  • No air pocket or dry spots
  • Tested for durability and show finish, will not distort under extreme heat
  • Environmentally friendly, low VOC emissions as part is cured in a closed mold

Many will say they can purchase fiberglass hoods for half the price. Just like cars, performance will vary with each model. ACS’s RTM manufacturing process has been tested and validated by both GM and Ford and can be found on some of America’s most recognizable muscle and supercars like Camaro’s and the centennial Ford GT. Unlike most aftermarket composite panels, ACS’s process has been tested to withstand High Heat and 7 yr. durability standards; a requirement for class A automotive panels.

No Gel coats are used. Gel coats are the industry’s “Band Aid”. Glossy and Shiny it is a perfect cover up for a part out of box. ACS’s parts are molded using no gel coats; this is the only way parts can be fully inspected prior to assembly and ensure our customer get a part they can enjoy for years to come.

Finally, ACS parts are the only aftermarket parts, which are prepped and primed. The final step in each ACS panel is to hand sand and prime the panels using automotive primers, a step your painter and body shop will greatly appreciate.

The next time you are shopping for Composite Panels, make sure to ask, how are the panels made. What type of standards and testing has been done to claim “quality fiberglass”, and most important what type of raw materials were used, we can proudly say our materials and labor is exclusively from America!
